Customs Advice

The importation of certain products into a country is restricted in order to protect the economy and safety of its citizens. The restrictions may be imposed by Customs or by any other agency which has regulatory authority.

We provide a shipping service only and Customs at the parcel's destination will determine whether any charges are payable on your package. All duties, taxes and/or quarantine fees applied are at the discretion of local customs or governmental organisations and are out of our control.

If the addressee refuses to pay duties/taxes, the parcel may be held, returned (if allowed by Customs) or destroyed, and additional costs may be incurred. As per Terms and Conditions, those charges will be billed to the sender.

Please note, no shipping costs are recoverable for parcels held or destroyed, even if shipping protection cover has been purchased.

Majority of parcels can be delivered door to door, once it has cleared customs at destination. However, some countries have a door to airport service only. In those countries, the recipients may have to present themselves to either Customs or the local courier's office to take possession of their consignment.

We advise you to verify independently, all Customs, Governmental and Quarantine regulations. These rules can and do frequently change without prior notice or recourse.

Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI)

It is now a requirement that all exporters sending freight outside of the E.U must have an EORI number if they are VAT registered.

If you have any queries regarding the EORI application process then please visit the HMRC website.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to South Korea, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.

Restrictions

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to South Korea is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.

Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:

Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to South Korea, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

Every facet of the service we offer at RapidParcel.com has been built with the convenience of our customers at its core. We offer a range of ways for you to book your parcel delivery to Incheon because we realise that no two customers are exactly alike and that different people have different needs. Some customers may be office based and find it convenient to access the site from their own desktop computer, whereas others might spend a lot of time on the move and so feel it's easier to use our mobile-optimised website (Mobisite) on their phone to book an Incheon package delivery. There are also customers who may be arranging shipping to Incheon for the first time and, although we strive to make the process as simple as possible, they may want the extra reassurance of one-to-one help and advice, and they can access this by booking their Incheon parcel delivery at any of the dedicated 'Rapid Parcel & Post' booking and drop-off points situated around the UK. All these different features have precisely the same overall aim - making the experience of booking a package delivery to Incheon as quick, convenient and simple as it possibly can be.

The port city of Incheon is situated in north-western South Korea. The development of its port has led to economic growth for the city in recent years, with Incheon being declared Korea's first free economic zone in 2003. Since then both larger Korean companies and international concerns such as Samsung have based their offices and headquarters in Incheon. The presence of an international airport alongside the major seaport has led to Incheon assuming a position as a major transport, financial and business centre for the whole of Northeast Asia.

You may have friends or family who have decided to relocate to South Korea, and you want to send a package delivery to Incheon to let them know, in the clearest terms possible, that they are always in your thoughts.

As we've already stated, we pride ourselves on working for our customers' convenience, and that's why we offer a parcel collection service which is second to none. Not for us the instruction that you stay at home and wait for us to collect your Incheon shipping at our convenience, since we're keenly aware that our customers lead busy lives and may need to be out and about. That's why we'll collect your package delivery to Incheon from absolutely any address in the UK to which we can gain access. It could be your office, a hotel you're staying at or the house of a friend; it doesn't matter where - if it makes things easier for you, then that's where we'll go to collect your Incheon parcel delivery, or a parcel delivery to Seoul or package delivery to Busan, to absolutely anywhere in Korea in fact. Whatever the destination, your convenience is our aim.
